Nectar of the Gods

For New Year's Eve with Dan, Sam and Lily (and Daisy and Sprout!), I am making classic cheese fondue. I figure there is no recipe that is more Pretty Faces-compliant than one that calls for two pounds of cheese and more than a cup of wine.

Merry Mittens

Project Codename: Mittmas
Yarn: Knitpicks Shine Worsted, Grass and Seaspray
Pattern: Standard Mitten from the Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns
Needles: Size 2 dpns

I wanted to have these done for Christmas, but, well, that didn't happen. However, I did get extensive practice knitting jogless stripes, so I still consider it a success.

Yes, it occasionally gets cold enough for mittens in Florida. At the very least, Tyler uses them for Kleenex in a pinch.
